London Bespoke Cakes
London & Beyond
Welcome to Simon's Bakery. I am a cake maker based in Tooting, south London, creating delicious ganache & buttercream modern London bespoke cake designs for weddings and other events
A passion for modern design, colour and precision
I specialise in designing buttercream and ganache wedding cakes and other celebration cakes that have a modern contemporary look to them.
Inspired by modern art and sculpture, interior design, architecture, the cakes I make are characterised by a contrast of shapes and angles, sharp edges, a precise finish and the abstract use of colour. This is combined with other design elements such as moulded wafer paper and chocolate and fresh and silk flowers.
The tastebuds should be excited just as much as the eyes
While I want my cakes to look visually stunning, I pride myself on creating exciting and delicious flavours that stand out the usual cake offerings.
I draw on years of cooking and baking experience to create flavours as as browned butter chocolate chip with roasted peach and bourbon salted caramel, or pistachio and orange cake with orange curd and caramelised pistachios.
I love working with clients to create bespoke flavours too, so if you have something in mind that I don't make, let's chat.
"Simon's Bakery created our wedding cake and it was spectacular! From initial consultation to the end result, Simon provided excellent customer service. Not only did our wedding cake have the wow factor, it was absolutely delicious! We opted for three different flavours, one for each tier and our wedding guests absolutely loved it. I highly recommend Simon's Bakery and look forward to having another celebration to use Simon's Bakery again!" Sarah Tims
"I’ve used Simon’s Bakery for three occasions now, including two birthdays and most recently for my wedding. The cakes are truly magnificent. The flavours are to die for, and the designs are quite simply works of art.
Simon is communicative and attentive - he really went the extra mile in ensuring the wedding cake was designed to fit our wedding and delivered to guarantee quality and presentation.
Worth every penny. Keep it up Simon - I (and Cicely) will definitely order from you again in the future!" Thomas Horton
GANACHE & BUTTERCREAM BIRTHDAY CAKES & OTHER CELEBRATION CAKES
Cake can't quite bring about world peace, nor solve the problem of plastic in the oceans, but it does bring a smile to the face and belly of friends and family and there's nothing better than celebrating a special occasion with a slice or two of moist, gooey, moreish cake. Whether it's a first birthday or a hundredth one, a new house, a friend moving away or celebrating the divorce papers coming through, there's always time for bespoke custom cake.

RUSSIAN HONEY CAKE - MEDOVIK CAKE
I was introduced to Russian Honey Cake (medovik cake) by an Australian Russian friend of mine and what a discovery it was. Delicious layers of lightly spiced sponge, toasted salted honey and dulce de leche cream filling with a caramelised walnut crumb. Heaven.
I've been perfecting the recipe over the years and I believe that mine is one of the best Russian honey cakes in London you can try.
For a something more special, I can also create a tiered Russian honey cake, perfect for a slightly different wedding cake.
